TimesTen Enables Voiceglo to Provide Real-Time VoIP Services

Real-Time Infrastructure Software Manages Active Calls, Ensures Real-Time Billing and Prevents Fraudulent Activity

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 25 /PRNewswire/ -- TimesTen, Inc., a provider of real-time infrastructure software, today announced that Voiceglo (BULLETIN BOARD: TGLO) , a global, full-service communications and networking company, has implemented the TimesTen(R)/DataServer real-time database system inside the company's VoIP network supporting its flagship product, GloPhone. TimesTen/DataServer manages time-critical network functions including call monitoring, tracking, real-time rating, depletion of prepaid balances and fraud control. TimesTen/DataServer was chosen for its high scalability, microsecond response times and standards-based architecture that enabled the TimesTen product to integrate easily with Voiceglo's existing infrastructure.

The proliferation of broadband connections into homes and businesses has been a catalyst for VoIP communications companies to offer new ways to make phone calls. VoIP is a fast-growing market as subscribers worldwide are seeking cheaper and more feature-rich alternatives to the offerings from traditional phone companies. This trend translates into an increased opportunity for VoIP communications companies to deliver primary and secondary phone service to residences and businesses over their existing broadband connections. To enable a quality user experience and retain customers, scalability, high availability and real-time access to subscriber information are essentials as the number of users and volume of calls increases exponentially over time. To meet these challenges, Voiceglo turned to TimesTen's proven DataServer product.

Voiceglo's Web- and PC-based GloPhone utilizes VoIP technology and enables users to access phone service through any PC in a user-friendly manner, helping millions worldwide connect with family, friends and colleagues at a cost far below traditional phone service.

Through the proprietary, patent-pending PC-based GloPhone, Voiceglo users can call each other while online (i.e. peer-to-peer calling), anywhere in the world for free. With a nominal subscription service, Voiceglo users can also make and receive calls to and from any regular phone or wireless phone. In addition, Voiceglo offers a USB phone for making calls in a traditional manner while connected to a computer, as well as an MTA/router accessory allowing ordinary phones to connect to the Voiceglo VoIP network.

According to Edward Cespedes, president of Voiceglo, "TimesTen provides the real-time infrastructure software required to support the rigorous scalability, real-time response and increasing volumes that VoIP services and networks need to accommodate."

"Voiceglo's GloPhone is an excellent example of the innovative VoIP offerings that are gaining rapid market traction with both consumers and enterprises," said Jim Groff, CEO, TimesTen, Inc. "In this competitive environment, VoIP communication companies will have to examine their infrastructures to ensure they can deliver reliable, high-quality services and a real-time, feature-rich experience," added Groff.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
